Elon Musk has now become the most valuable human on earth! His net worth suddenly surged by $10bn after Tesla crossed a Trillion Dollar valuation. Even though Tesla is a newer company, this valuation has made Musk worth more than Volkswagen, Ford and General Motors put together!
The Trillion Dollar valuation for Tesla came after Hertz ordered 100,000 electric vehicles from the automobile manufacturer. But Musk’s good fortune is not entirely based on Tesla’s performance in the automobile sector. Musk has also pioneered a space exploration company and SpaceX is also a big contributor to his fortune. Musk is now far ahead of the person with second highest net worth. This is the Amazon boss Jeff Bezos. Jeff Bezos has a current net worth of $198 bn even though he was the first person to cross a net worth of $200bn a little while ago.
If this talk of billions and trillions is making you go all dizzy, you are not the only one!
